Become an All-Cash Buyer.
Win Your Dream Home.

Powered by Homelight Cash offer ™

HomeLight makes an all-cash offer on your behalf. That has real value. Cash offers are 3x more likely to win and can get you a 5% savings, on average, versus offers with a loan.

How HomeLight Cash Offer Works


1. Get approved

HomeLight Home Loans will verify your income, assets, and purchasing power so that we’re ready to make the strongest offer possible — one that’s all cash.

2. Find your dream home

This is the fun part: We help identify the right homes to fit your needs.

3. Make an all-cash offer

We’ll use our funds to make an all-cash offer on the house on your behalf and close in 8 days. You don’t need to move a muscle.

4. The offer is accepted

You do the celebrating and we do the buying. We purchase the home and hold it while you secure financing.

What It Costs

Pricing could not be simpler. In addition to paying typical Real Estate commissions, closing costs, and repair expenses, there is a fee that typically runs about 1.5% of the home you are selling. 

​We find that most clients will recoup some or all of this fee by being able to make a stronger non-contingent offer on a new home AND getting top dollar for the existing home being vacant and all cleaned up. Below is a cost breakdown from an actual client.
